ESPN names Miami as a 'winner' of Early Signing Period
ESPN identified Miami as one of the winners of the Early Signing Period.
The Hurricanes have signed all but one of their 26 commits so far, with the lone delay being from 5-star cornerback Cormani McClain. As it stands, Miami has the No. 4 recruiting class in the country, per 247Sports Composite rankings.
Here’s some analysis from Tom VanHaaren:
On Nov. 29, Cristobal and his staff were able to flip ESPN 300 defensive end Collins Acheampong from Michigan. Since that flip, Miami has added six more high school recruits to the class, including five-star offensive lineman Samson Okunlola, running back Mark Fletcher, defensive end Rueben Bain and ESPN 300 athlete Christopher Johnson.
The staff also went into the transfer portal to add immediate contributors and added former Alabama offensive lineman Javion Cohen and UCF corner transfer Davonte Brown.
If Miami can finish its class with a signature from McClain, this will be one of the better ACC recruiting classes in recent years. The Canes currently have commitments from a trio of 5-star prospects.
Clemson is the only other ACC program to carry a top 10 recruiting class into the weekend. Florida State and North Carolina are both in the top 30.
Miami isn’t done recruiting in this cycle, however. The Hurricanes have been aggressive in adding talent via the transfer portal. That’s expected to continue in the coming weeks and months.
